benjamin netanyahu was prime minister. and there was a lot of frustration there, and i describe that a little bit to explain the context with which, within which people were operating. hillary clinton is in a way back. he wasn't in the policy-making aspect of the white house back in the '90s, but she remembers what the interactions were like. rahm emanuel is back. he was by bill clinton's side not necessarily devising policy on the middle east either, but certainly an adviser. and now he's there with president obama, and it's sort of -- it sort of informs a little bit of the mood of needing to be bullish b and needing to be strong when it comes to dealing with benjamin netanyahu because everybody's been there before. and i had, um, you know, american officials tell me, you know, benjamin netanyahu thinks that he can, you know, wait this out until we leave, but, you know, we're going to be here longer than him. so we can just, you know, try to move the ball forward a little bit here and there until he's edged out of, you know, the political scene pause that's just the nature of p
, was in power in the 90s when benjamin netanyahu was primeman, and there -- prime minister, and there was a lot of frustration there which i used to explain the context in which people are operating. hillary clinton wasn't in the policymaking aspect of the white house back in the '9s but she remembers what the interactions were like. rahm emanuel is back. he was by bill clinton's side, certainly an adviser, and now he is there with president obama, and it sort of informs a little bit of the mood of needing to be bullish and needing to be strong when it comes to dealing with benjamin netanyahu, because everybody has been there before. i had american officials tell me benjamin netanyahu thinks he can wait this out until we leave, but we're going to be here longer than him. so we can just try to move the ball forward a little bit here and there until he is edged out of the political scene because that's just the nature of politics in israel. but benjamin netanyahu has just been re-elected. so there were a series of miscalculations. but i think that what i would like to remind people of is that the
and prime minister benjamin netanyahu have yet to reach a clear consensus on where the red line is. and if they can better under where iran stands in the process of developing nuclear weapons that will be a step forward. that being said this is probably more a similar pwoeublg than a substantive trip. any time a president goes to is raoerblgs regardless of the economy conditions in this country i think that's a good thing for america. martha: it seals like at this point that the discussion about iran and where the red line is is much more front and center than a meaningful peace process discussion at this point. it feels that is sort of on the back bryne. this clearly becomes the focus of these conversations. myra, if you're at the white house, you would say, look, this is what it takes. we're going to sit down, have discussions, spend to time face-to-face. they have had a complicated relationship, this president and benjamin netanyahu by all accounts. isn't this a good first step in the right direction. >> i think it could be a good first step. one of the major complaints from rep
far, obama and israeli president benjamin netanyahu have been doing their best to put personal disagreements behind them. >> we look now at where israel and the u.s. stand today and with this visit could possibly take those ties. >> this is it is more of a symbolic gesture and less about the specifics of a peace plan. barack obama's aimed to build back a little warm in relations with israel. >> we've spent more time together, working together than i have with any leader, and this speaks to the closeness of our two nations. [applause] >> the alliance between the united states and israel is considered sacrosanct and has a long tradition. it dates back to 1967, during the six-day war. israeli forces took control of the west bank and the gaza strip. washington's pro-israeli policy was born with president lyndon b. johnson starting to send money and arms to the jewish state. 11 years later, the leaders of first world enemies israel and egypt signed the camp david accords after two weeks of intense negotiations led by president jimmy carter. the palestinians never give up their desir
to forehead with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. for several minutes the two leaders, allegedly this frosty relationship, joking, laughing, talking, covering their mouths to make sure those with cameras couldn't figure out what they were saying. this the latest in several scenes where both of the leaders, maybe they're acting but they are very good actors if they are. they have made a clear decision to try to get along better as they move on to the long list of challenges. as the trip wraps up in the morning if there is a risk for the president it's this. he came in with low expectations and may have raised expectations and hopes too high. you've covered this issue for many years. the president talking to young israelis today demanding they challenge their leadership and old ways of blocking obstacles to the peace process the president saying he thinks it is possible, promising he'll make a personal commitment to get the parties back to the table. if you look at the obstacles whether rockets from hamas, continued building in israeli settlements, hard to see a peace process any t
president obama and prime minister benjamin netanyahu hold a historic news conference in jerusalem. there are lots of conflicting reports today about a possible chemical weapons attack in syria and we are told that will be one of the top issues that we'll hear about right here in the next 50 minutes. and welcome to "america live," i'm megyn kelly. right now, president obama and the israeli prime minister are meeting behind closed doors. we expect to hear them both within the hour. the president's trip comes at a dangerous time for the jewish state and the entire region. to israel's west, questions about the muslim brotherhood and political stability in egypt. and to the east, syria, in the grips of an allout civil war and just 24 hours ago we received reports that chemical weapons may have been used against one side or the other. and of course, there is the constant threat from iran which president obama himself warned could be less than a f having a nuclear weapon. so as we await this historical-making news conference we want to check in with our own leland vittert live with the h
with benjamin netanyahu. following a would closed-door meeting between those two leaders. as the assad regime and syrian rebels accuse each other of launching deadly chemical and launching a deadly chemical attack just hours before the president's arrival. the white house at this point says it cannot con official those claims. this trip to israel is the first for the president. this is a four-day middle east trip. he was greeted by netanyahu and israeli president perez. before leaving the a airport, president obama was shown the israeli air force system which the u.s. helped pay for. he met with president perez and took part in a ceremonial tree planting. >> there is a common vision uniting us. to confirm dangers. to bring closure as soon as possible. >> i reaffirm president perez, as i will throughout my visit, that in this work, the state of israel will have no greater friend than the united states. right now as president meets with prime minister netanyahu, major issues, like syria, iran's nuclear program, stalled peace talks. ish a us taking center stage and joining me live now from jerus
in the middle east, here is what he had to say when greeted by benjamin netanyahu. it's in our fundamental security interest to stand with israel. it makes us both stronger and more prosperous and makes the world a better place. >> so question is, what exactly is the president hoping to accomplish in israel. here now we republican former u.s. ambassador and dan senor the coauthor of start up nation. joining me here on set for the hour, ryan grim, huff post washington bureau chief, and tony frato, former white house deputy press secretary. welcome to one and all, if i may go to you first, ambassador, there's all this media chatter that i'm reading today that president obama the not know what he wants to do and he has no agenda. it's said that he was the first u.s. president to visit israel as a tourist. okay, do you feel that obama has no agenda items at all as the middle east is unraffivaling in >> -- unraveling? >> no, he has a real agenda, to introduce himself to the people of israel as a friend. everything that he said says that, that he has their back, that he will be in the trenches w
nuclear weapons. benjamin netanyahu said that iran would need about one year to build a nuclear weapon. joining me now with how this would how it would affect the u.s. and how we should confront this. what do you think? >> i think first of all as an american he wants the president to succeed and want him to take the right action but in view of the actions and apology tour, between israeli and the palestinians and it creates doubt. and doing nothing in the summer of 2009 to move against the iranian government and the fact that israel, worse than any ally has been treated. white house has treated them like a beggar. >> sean: why would israel, why would the prime minister who is a very smart man. would he or should he trust obama? i wouldn't trust him if i were him. >> he has to say publicly he does. i don't know what is going on behind the scenes. >> sean: i think it's for public consumption. >> i think netanyahu is a smart guy and making a case and making it clear if he has to he will act unilaterally that could bring president obama in. i'm sure that net snet very concerned. >> sean: h
on everything. he was on the limited apology to turk yes. i think iran is a gut issue for benjamin netanyahu. and certainly having publicman more -- opinion more on his side can only help the president as he relates to the new government. so i would say that's the first part. and i think dennis and i agree. the policy summit -- these guys are going to be having something like four or five hours together. probably the most intense conversation of time that netanyahu and obama ever spent together. obama said there's no leader he has except more time with than than netanyahu. but each one has -- there's some sober expectations. they have been at this four years already. obama knows that netanyahu maybe doesn't have rabbi ins -- each one comes to the meeting with more sober expectations, and that could be a good thing, i think. i would say that -- from the israel side, my sense is that, i just thought i would lay out how i saw that conversation and lay out some other key points, sirra, lebanon, and the palestinian issue. on the iran issue, i think it's clear that the netanyahu people go in belie
fences with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu after the two leaders sparred over expansion of jewish settlements and areas claimed by the palestinians. on the trip mr. obama will head to the palestinian authority for a meeting with president mahmoud abbas. >> this reflects a deep commitment by president obama to see the limitation of the two state solution. >> reporter: not everyone there is happy the president is coming. some protesters in bethlehem burned ape poster of mr. obama. the president rounds off his trip with a stop in jordan for a meeting g meeting. administration officials have set low expectations for the trip saying there will be no major announcements of a breakthrough in the israeli-palestinian peace process. >>> the mayor of kansas city missouri, was in the middle of delivering his state of the city address when a man shoved him, and grabbed the microphone. he managed to shout obscenities, slammed the mayor before police tackled him out. eyewitnesses say he scuffled with the officers for ten minutes backstage before he was finally escor
benjamin netanyahu issuing a stunning apology to the turkish prime minister for this, an israeli commando attack that killed nine people on a gaza bound flotilla nearly three years ago. our senior international correspondent ivan watson is now joining us from amman, jordan. your base in turkey right now. i have to tell you for all of the things the president may have done over the past 48, 72 hours on this trip to the middle east, clearly the most productive is healing this, at least getting the start of a healing process between these two u.s. allies, turkey and israel. >> certainly president obama putting a diplomatic feather in his cap by basically getting these two very important middle eastern allies of the u.s., turkey and israel, to talk to each other. the two prime ministers in a phone call, prime minister benjamin netanyahu of israel calling his turkish counterpart from the tarmac basically of the airport with the u.s. president alongside him and basically bringing an end to nearly three years of ruptured relations between these two very important middle eastern powers. the israe
to touch the public opinion. and then the leaders especially been minimum n benjamin netanyahu will follow. this man walked back from lots of principles just to get the soldier back. netanyahu was very, very attuned to the public opinion. so i think they understood they have to grasp the young generation, the people of israel. i think president obama did that from the very first moment he stepped down in israel. you know he was off that plane, he took off his jacket, he was informal. he hugged every kid he saw on the way. he first he took netanyahu, he talked about you know his wife, his late brother. his kids. and today he took the israeli public. but you know, i'm not sure because i was listening to that speech and i was asking myself, was it the caring parent giving a pep talk to his adolescent child saying -- >> was it too paternalistic? >> no, in that sense, saying we'll always have your back, but you have to take your future in your hands. we're not going to be there to do that for you. this is your last wake-up call. or will there be steps to follow? this i'm not sure, because i mea
in the history of the u.s./israeli relationship. now benjamin netanyahu bears an enormous amount of the responsibility for that. if this president doesn't want to be the president on whose watch iran gets a nuclear weapon and the two-state solution expires, he's simply going to have to figure out a way to work with netanyahu and the new government and that, that new start, i don't like the word reset. but that new relationship begins this week. >> but at the same time, tommy, when the president was asked by israeli television about his relationship with netanyahu, he described it as business-like. he didn't say my good friend, he didn't try to sugar-coat it, frankly. i think anyone who has seen the pictures of them together over the years knows it's not a cozy relationship. >> well you know -- >> it's a strategic alliance. >> right. aaron can tell you, bebe netanyahu is not a warm and fuzzy guy, i don't think he needs to be. they've got be a lot done together. they've spent more time one-on-one the president has with almost any other leader. but if you look at the record of us su
trappings of a state visit. joking with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu that it was good to get away from congress the president reaffirmed what he called the unbreakable bond between the two nations. a sentiment that was roundly reciprocated. >> the people of islam welcome you with open heart. we deeply appreciate your friendship and we share your hope that the middle east will enjoy a future freedom, prosperity, and peace. >> i'm confident in declaring that our alliance is eternal. it is forever. >> and while relations between the president and prime minister have been described as tense, to say the least, on this trip the two appeared down right chummy. at this afternoon's joint presser the two of them even teamed up to take on the man now forever to be known as nbc's encouraincorrigible political d. >> another question i had for you is -- >> chuck, how many have you got? do you guys do this in the israeli press? you say you get one question? you see how the young lady from channel 1, she had one question? she was very well behaved, cluck? >> this is not a kosher question, bu

things deteriorating especially with that news conference last week, between benjamin netanyahu and president obama and sounded like netanyahu says, look, i've been given the okay to go ahead alone if i need to and what's in the middle east. >> you've handled it skillfully and see the administration use the relationship with morsi to help stop the hamas rocket attacks late last year and egypt has not turned fully towards iran yet and we need to keep egypt as part of an anti-iran coalition in the arab world and as you say, to maintain the peace agreement with israel. and that points to the need for risk diplomacy behind the scenes and i think the united states is doing it and a skillful ambassador in patterson and secretary of state in john kerry. and i think they're going to have them cease and desist from the aggressive tactics they're they think and turn this situation into one where the government begins to listen to the people on the street and gives them an opportunity to say what they have to say and try to reduce this level of violence. i don't think it would make any sen
and benjamin bb netanyahu and took questions from his friends in the lame stream media and did not have an explanation why he's done nothing to promote peace in the middle east. >> meeting none of these challenges will be easy, ultimately it's a hard problem. it is a hard to work through all of these issues, 'cause it's hard. precisely because it's hard. >> sean: there you have it. your nobel peace prize winner in action. wow, what amazing stuff. also tonight, stunning images of civil unrest in the west bank are making the rounds. these protests were staged in anticipation of the anointed one's arrival, the burning of american flags and burning of images of obama himself. more evidence that the anointed one has failed to make good on his promise that he would restore america's standing in the world. joining me tonight with analysis, former florida congressman colonel allen west along with radio talk show host and be fox news contributor, leslie marshall welcome back to the program. and leslie, suck up america's arrogant apology tour, it blows up in his face. things have gotten dramatica
